During the Summer of 2020, the partners of the GP practice I work in built a garden as a ‘thank you’ to the staff for their efforts during the first Covid-19 lockdown.

It is a much valued sanctuary away from the stress of work and wearing of PPE. A special space for a break in the fresh air and silence for quiet reflection on our current situation. Precious moments grasped to recharge with a cup of tea in the company of the resident blackbird – and then to carry on.
